Michigan State basketball star Xavier Tillman did more in three years of college than most people do in their lifetime. Is he even human?

When you were in college, what did you accomplish? You probably finished with good grades, may have made the dean’s list, partied quite a bit and graduated in four years, right? Heck, some of you may have taken five or six years to graduate.

Well, Xavier Tillman just made everyone look silly.

The Michigan State big man graduated this spring after just three years and that capped off one heck of a college career.

While he still might come back to Michigan State, he doesn’t have a ton left to accomplish. And his list of accomplishments in three years is actually kind of ridiculous.

Let’s just take a look at some of the highlights from his college career:

  • Fathered two kids
  • Got married
  • Won Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year
  • Won three straight Big Ten titles
  • Won a Big Ten Tournament title
  • Made a Final Four
  • Got in the best shape of his life
  • Became the all-time blocks leader at MSU
  • Was named an Academic All-American
  • Graduated in three years

Can we talk about how he may not be human, after all? He accomplished more in three years in East Lansing than most people do in their entire lives and he did it all in three years.

Imagine having a kid while you’re in college and playing a sport as well. Then imagine throwing another kid and a marriage into the mix while trying to balance basketball and school. He managed his time better than anyone could have imagined, excelled on the court and off it and earned his degree in just three years and now he may be off to the NBA.

If you didn’t appreciate what Tillman did for the program before, you probably should now because the dude did some machine-like work at Michigan State.
